What You’ll Love…

The Hotels ‚Äď Indulgent five-star service, including Four Seasons and Marriott stays

Experience world-renowned elegance at the Four Seasons Casa Medina Hotel in Bogotá. Housed in a landmark 1946 building and designed by acclaimed Colombian architect Santiago Medina Mejia, this stunning property boasts old-world beauty in the form of beamed ceilings, hand-carved wooden furnishings and cosy fireplaces. Mere steps from the buzz of the financial district, it’s a welcome retreat for travellers, with no two rooms boasting the same décor. Your Deluxe Room invites you to sink into your plush queen bed or the comfort of your leather armchair after days exploring, while fine-dining establishment Castanyoles offers delicious local food in stylish Mediterranean-inspired surrounds.

Signature Marriott service awaits at the Medellin Marriott Hotel, situated in the heart of El Poblado, near some of the city’s main attractions. Blending modern amenities with the charms of Medellin, a day spa and restaurant await, as does the comfort of your Deluxe Room.

One of Cartagena‚Äôs best located hotels, the Charleston Santa Teresa Hotel places you in the midst of this UNESCO World Heritage-listed walled city. Luxe d√©cor of marble floors and stone pillars await, alongside rejuvenating spa facilities, a rooftop pool and a restaurant serving international cuisine. Your chic room offers a generous bathroom with soaking tub and plush robes ‚Äď the ideal antidote after days exploring the city.

The Experiences ‚Äď Tour the cities of Bogot√°, Medellin and Cartagena and visit a sustainable coffee plantation

Your tour begins in the heart of Colombia; the thriving capital of Bogot√°. This vivacious city can be divided into two distinct parts; the old Candelaria Historic District, scattered with traditional colonial houses and cobbled streets, and the north of the city, which embodies modernity and innovation. Visit the Gold Museum, one of Colombia‚Äôs highlights, attracting around half a million tourists every year. Take in an incredible collection of more than 55,000 pieces of gold and take part in an optional ‚Äėcoffee baptism‚Äô, where you will learn more about different beans and brewing methods and taste your way through several delicious types of coffee.

Your coffee adventure continues with a visit to a sustainable coffee plantation for a tailor-made tour. Delve deep into the world of coffee production and find out how producers La Palma & El Tucan are working with local farmers, a water treatment plant and solar panels to make the process more eco-friendly and educate conscious coffee drinkers.

In Medellin, let a knowledgeable local guide introduce you to a city that, once terrorised by Pablo Escobar and his drug cartel, has transformed itself into a place of hope with a very bright future. Thanks to local politicians investing heavily in education, the youth of Medellin are now able to lead the way in the ‚ÄúCity of Eternal Spring‚ÄĚ.

Take a scenic drive through the Eastern Highlands of Antioquia and scale the 740 steps of the Pe√Īol Boulder, from which you can enjoy breathtaking views across the surrounding green mountains and blue lakes.

Since some of the finest cocoa types in the world can be found in Colombia, it’s only right that you should indulge in a memorable chocolate experience in Cartagena. At the ChocoMuseo, learn about every stage of the chocolate-making process, then have a go at creating your own before being rewarded with sweet treats to take home. Save room for a street food tour of Cartagena, making your way around favourite local stalls and vendors.

During a walking tour of Cartagena, a UNESCO World Heritage-listed walled city, take in the area’s rich colonial history as you pass old squares, charming alleys and old-world buildings such as the castle of San Felipe de Barajas, Inquisition Palace and the historic clock tower.
